Introduction

This article shows how to set Document Set approval status using NINTEX workflow in SharePoint. I have a team site in which I have activated the site collection feature "Document Sets".

Make sure content approval is enabled for the document library. (Click on the "Library" tab in the ribbon interface then select "Library Settings" => "Versioning Settings" then set "Require content approval for submitted items is set" to "Yes".) I have created a choice column "Department" in the document library. In this article you will see how to set Document Set approval status.
